Isle of Man based company, GamesCo, will be promoting the Isle of Man and their latest computer games at this year’s prestigious EGX Show.
GamesCo’s attendance at September’s EGX show in Birmingham will be used to promote the beta launch of their new title Grimm: Dark Legacy and the upcoming release of JCB Mars Pioneer, the first game to use JCB’s brand.
Mark Robson, Head of e-Gaming at the Department of Economic Development, commented:
‘The development of gaming companies on the Isle of Man is an exciting new vertical that covers a range of companies and opportunities for developers and creative talent. The launch of these titles and GamesCo’s prominent position at EGX demonstrate what can be achieved when the Isle of Man’s public and private sector are able to work together effectively. The Department wishes GamesCo every success at the show and we look forward to continuing to work with their team and similarly innovative companies in the future.’
GamesCo started on the Isle of Man in 2015 with the aim to establish an online computer games publishing business based on the use of iconic brands and film IPs.
Dave Mousley, Director of GamesCo commented:
‘These are the first computer games of any scale produced by an Isle of Man based company and our presence at the show is intended to showcase these new products. Support from Isle of Man based investors and the Isle of Man Government have been absolutely vital in the production of these titles. As a result, we will be promoting both our products and the supportive ecosystem of the Isle of Man at EGX.’
